I didn't want to bake these in the oven, and it was too cloudy to cook in the solar oven, so I steamed these. I doubled the recipe, using gluten free flour, and half the amount of honey as I would have used if I had used sugar. I steamed the double batch in 3 egg poaching cups.steaming for 20 minutes. They are heavy and dense with great flavor!
Decided to try this recipe since I was having a chocolate craving and this sounded like a quick and easy sweet to solve it. It was very easy to make and does fit perfectly into a standard size mug. However I found it to taste more like warm chocolate flavored flour with sweetener than the brownie I was looking forward to. I was very disappointed. It's a great idea, but the final product just does not live up to its full pan counterpart.
Tankyy have I told you how much I love you?!!! I've made this several times now playing with it each time. Great for those chocolate cravings and there is nothing in the house kinda fix. I think I have it down. Add a drop of vanilla ,use canola oil and top with chips such as chocolate or caramel. Let sit for several minutes and top with vanilla ice cream. This is a gooey chocolate wonder! Thanks so much for sharing this delight!
Veg oil instead of olive oil, dash of vanilla absolute bliss.
I was pretty disappointed with this recipe. I wasn't a thick dense cake but more of a thick mush. Also the taste of olive oil was overwhelming. It did taste like chocolate though.
I was skeptical about brownie in a mug. I had a major brownie craving and decided I had nothing to lose. It actually turned out really well considering its made in a mug for a minute and 40 seconds. Room for improvement of course. Still very good and it solved my brownie fix problem. I might add melted butter next time too. Very much a keeper and kids would LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
These are great for those moments when nothing but a rich, chocolatey brownie will do! I didn't care for the taste the olive oil gave, so I used canola oil instead; I plan to try melted butter one of these days. I reduced the sugar to 3 tablespoons, and it only took 50 seconds in the microwave. I topped it with a little peanut butter--pure bliss!
I don't know why the recipe says to use olive oil, but I followed directions and the brownie had a strong olive oil taste, and I couldn't eat more than two bites of it. I might try it again with veg or canola oil, but can only give it 3 points using the original recipe. Perhaps some people won't be sensitive to the olive oil flavor, but to me, it doesn't "go" with chocolate flavor.
